MARTIAL ARTS CLASSES IN THUNDER BAY

My name is Grandmaster Soengkono and I am the owner of Soengkono World Class Martial Arts. When I was a child, I began my martial arts journey and the positive impact it had on my life was remarkable. It was always my dream to someday own my own school and when I opened Soengkono World Class Martial Arts in 1987, I made a commitment to our community in Thunder Bay to create an enjoyable environment for students to improve their fitness, while building confidence they can carry into their everyday lives. It is my privilege and honor to take the the knowledge I have received in my own martial arts training and pass it on to the students at my school.

OUR MISSION IS TO EMPOWER BOTH ADULTS AND CHILDREN IN OUR COMMUNITY TO BECOME MORE CONFIDENT, HEALTHIER, AND HAPPIER THROUGH HIGH-QUALITY INSTRUCTIONS IN SELF-DEFENCE, SELF-IMPROVEMENTS, AND LIFE SKILLS.

We teach all of our members to focus on and be present in the moment. In this age of distractions and sensory overload, this is a skill which returns immediate results in all aspects of one's life. Here are some interesting facts about Soengkono World Class Martial Arts:

  • Our members are from all walks of life - we have students, attorneys, doctors, engineers, military and law enforcement all training in a fun, team-oriented family environment.
  • We have kids that have been training for years that leave to top colleges and universities in the country, thanks in part to the discipline and focus on hard work they learned through martial arts. This is something we take a great amount of pride in.
  • Beyond the individual styles taught at our school, GrandMaster Soengkono teaches the art of peace - realize that peace, both external peace and inner peace, is not the absence of conflict but our ability to cope with it.

It is our goal to inspire strength, discipline, confidence and focus in our students, to help them discover their inner leader. I believe every child has the potential to be a leader, they just need someone to believe in them. As a parent myself, I understand the challenges of raising a confident and focused child in an age where there are more distractions than ever.

And while the kids have their fun, our adult program is second to none. From traditional martial arts to more modern self-defense styles, there is something for everyone at Soengkono World Class Martial Arts. If you are looking to burn major calories, learn self-defense moves and get in the best shape of your life, you must come and check out our adult program.

Imagine yourself as a stronger, more confident individual in the best shape of your life. I want to personally invite you to take advantage of our introductory trial offer, and turn that vision into a reality.

It would be a privilege to meet you and your child to have them step into the wonderful world of martial arts.
